For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

One of the most profound realities of church life is the privilege of service. God blesses churches with leaders, but these leaders cannot and should not carry out the mission of the church on their own. Instead, pastors are to equip the people for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12). Then, when all the members are serving one another in keeping with the way God uniquely made them (1 Corinthians 12), God receives the glory (1 Peter4).

Serve in our church

Use your unique gifts to further the mission.

Every member is a minister, but every minister is also a uniquely designed minister. We have different passions, experiences, skills, personalities, and networks of relationships. God has sovereignly prepared us for ministry and we will be the most fruitful and fulfilled when we serve in harmony with that unique design. Take a moment now to complete this survey that will help you find a place of service in harmony with your unique design. God wants all of who we are to go into loving and serving Him. God has designed you for His service.

Volunteer FAQ

How do I volunteer?

At CBC, we believe so strongly in every member ministry that we have a person whose ministry focus is to help other people get involved in ministry, our Community Service Coordinator. What are the benefits of having a Community Service Coordinator?  Centralized ministry placement gives Ministry Coordinators one place to go for volunteers and CBC members one place to go to explore volunteer opportunities. We also want to avoid “warm body” syndrome – just grabbing the nearest person to fill ministry needs. We believe that people will flourish best and ministries will be most successful when there is a good minister-ministry “fit.” To get started, complete the Passions & Skills Form above.

Do I have to be a member to serve at CBC?

While there are a few volunteer opportunities for non-members at CBC, the majority of service opportunities are reserved for those who've made the commitment of membership. Sometimes well-meaning people assume that church membership is not taught in Scripture and is therefore a man-made imposition. However, in NT times there was no such thing as an “unchurched Christian.” When one was baptized, he was united with the particular local church in his area (see Acts 2:41). The modern practice of church membership is nothing more than commitment to grow and serve in a particular local church.

How do I volunteer for Children’s Ministry?

We take the protection and care of our children at CBC very seriously. All of our youth and children's ministries are staffed by trained personnel who have completed our Child Protection Policy training & certification. If you are interested in serving in any of CBC's Student or Children's Ministries, complete the Children's Ministry Volunteer Application to learn more and begin the application process.

I completed the Passions & Skills Form. Now what?

CBC's Community Service Coordinator will usually follow up after someone completes their initial Passions & Skills Form. If you are already serving in an area or if you're not a new member and there is not a ministry currently in need of your selected passions & skills, you may not hear from him right away. As ministry needs arise, the Community Service Coordinator will invite members whose service profile fits the need to consider that ministry opportunity. If you would like to be contacted, you can use the NEXT STEP section of our Connection Form below to indicate your desire to volunteer.
